Explore Angola's wildlife at Parque Nacional da Quiçama, established as a game reserve in the 1930s. Sandwiched between the Cuanza and Longa Rivers, the park encompasses 120 km (75 mi) of the Atlantic Ocean's coast and features diverse vegetation ranging from mangrove forests to dense woods and savannahs with plenty of cacti and baobab trees. Part of the largest animal transplant in history, the park is currently being repopulated by elephants and other animals from Botswana and South Africa.

  • Not too many animals, but we did see a family of elephants and some giraffes — still worth the visit if you're in Luanda!

  • There is not a lot of animals there, and the services are not that good as well. The lake view looks nice though, and the way to arrive there is also nice to drive at.

  • Perfect place for a day out, from Luanda. Set amidst nature, is well connected to the capital of Angola, through a highway. The park has some giraffes, wild boars and migratory birds during winters. In addition to the fauna, the vegetation is also quite unique. The landscape is surreal with African cactus which grow to more than 10 feet and Baobab with extremely broad trunks for storing water through the drought season. Beautiful
  • A tragedy of a national park.. very few animals, and about 100,000 humans living inside the protected area… during covid pandemic, the 60+ giraffe population was decimated to 0.. they’ve had to import 3 new giraffes and restart the population. Frankly this place needs 2 days of safari to see anything, and the high human presence around the park meaning poaching will probably keep the animal populations very low (unlike the hubs of life visible in south Kenya and Tanzania) There are far more fertile and isolated parts of Angolan Wilderness that need protecting. This was a great idea during colonial times, when the population of Luanda was sub-1million. It’s now difficult to fathom how long this can continue to be called a “National Park” with any credibility
